The views from the lawn are spectacular. The hottub was also great. Unfortunately, the entire building and the 15 feet sourrounding it were permeated by an overwhelming and overpowering poop smell from that compost toilet.

I pondered this for some time...

  • 3 of 5

Positives - location is awesome, great launching point to north and south locations. Walking distance to the beach at Devils Punchbowl and as a surfer you couldn't ask for a better location.

Pondering thoughts - I don't surf anymore but wanted a beach weekend with my dogs. No where in what I read did I discover that this property is on a dangerous cliff and my dogs had to be tethered the entire time to secure their safety. Sheer drop off that I would have liked to have been made aware of.

- I was there on a freakishly hot weekend and realized 2 things - enclosed bedroom doesn't have great ventilation or any kind or relationship with the beauty of the location. Close the door and you're out of nature. Second downfall is the door/main wall to the bath area is in direct sunlight for the majority of the day. Severe heat and a composting toilet made for a bad combination. Keep in mind this was an anomaly but it could happen to you. Just be flexible. It was so abnormally hot that Saturday I had load us all in the car to take advantage of the AC and look for some moving air at the state beaches!

- I mentally told myself to take a beach chair, a lantern and a fan and forgot each so I can't fault the limited supplies after reading the reviews. Due to lack of light after sundown I tried the TV, not that I wanted to watch it, but got kind of bored after the sun went down (I had very spotty and limited Wi-Fi connection on my iPad, no equipment to set up outside, I was tied to the dogs since I couldn't leave them untethered or in the hot room to go into town given there was a surprising lack of places we could all go and eat outside, remember freakish heat)...

- Overall, I'm conflicted on my feelings on this stay. I really wanted a place where my dogs were able to 'be free' at a private spot. Wasn't here. The heat made the bathroom really an unholy mess. Again, record breaking so take that into account. The owner was very responsive. I forgot some things I should have brought along, my bad. Neighbors were nice enough, I met a couple. But I would say you have a fabulous overall location when you are in the middle of a super popular weekend and have access to private parking and a fabulous beach within walking distance. Figure out your priorities...I would consider doing it again if the weather wasn't so extreme for my goals, and my dogs stayed at home.

This is the most beautiful place on the planet, seriously. Add in the fact that it is quiet, private, out of the wind and a lot sunnier and warmer than most places on the Oregon coast and you will see for your self this place is amazing.
